    Supporting the future of great music...

    In October, volunteers will be running the Cardiff half-marathon to raise funds in support of NMSW's transition from non-profit organisation to charity, under the new name of Sound World.

    Why is Sound World necessary?

    In recent years, the outlook for music in the UK has become increasingly poor and opportunities available to young state educated musicians have diminished significantly. Music departments across the country are closing and the government's decision not to include Music in the EBacc syllabus can only make things worse. A BBC report in March described fears that music "could face extinction" as a subject in secondary schools as a result.

    So, as well as our usual programme of workshops, concerts and community projects, we are also developing new projects getting primary school children composing their own new music and taking music education to disadvantaged youngsters.

    We believe that by providing talented young musicians with the opportunities they need to thrive and by raising public awareness and understanding of the diverse wealth of great music being written today, we can contribute to ensuring the long-term health of British music.

    A short film review of our first two seasons

    In just 4 years, NMSW has become a significant presence in the cultural landscape of the south-west and has provided 200+ young musicians from over 60 schools with inspiring workshop experiences and performance opportunities. We have put on some of the most memorable concerts of recent years, at venues such as Dartington Hall, St. George's and Hauser & Wirth, and we have developed a hugely successful community programme.

    Please help us to build on the great work we have done to date and support the future of great music!
